The Dalhousie Agricultural Campus is already located in a picturesque, small-town Nova Scotia community on the banks of the Salmon River. Add to that, the beautiful, impecibly maintained gardens and you're in a nature-lover's paradise.

Host a barbeque, a wedding, or simply stoll through one of our breath-taking gardens or other scenic outdoor spaces. To book a permit for garden use, contact Conference Services.
